Discover the Top Family Sailing Holiday Destinations
A family sailing holiday is the perfect way to relax and spend quality family time together while also experiencing a unique and wonderful adventure.
Around the world, there are many incredible family sailing holiday destinations to visit and experience. We have narrowed it down to our top five choices – Croatia, Greece, Turkey, British Virgin Islands and Menorca.
While there are plenty of family sailing holiday destinations to choose from, our top picks provide great things to see and do, along with calmer sailing conditions and great overnight mooring options.
Zadar is one of our favorite family sailing holiday destinations. The city is quieter than other cities like Split or Dubrovnik but still has plenty of places to explore.
Today you can enjoy the great history, in addition to the modern revival that Zadar has recently undergone. Zadar has plenty of attractions to fill your days and entertain the whole family with restored museums and churches, new restaurants, cafes, and bars.
In addition to the spectacular architecture, cuisine, and atmosphere, Zadar sits along the beautiful Dalmatian coast.
On a Zadar sailing itinerary, you can explore islands and small surrounding villages and towns.
Thanks to its calm waters and short sailing distances, the Ionian is a great place to visit on a family sailing holiday.
If you are embarking on your first family sailing holiday Greece’s Ionian is a great place to start.
With gentle winds, plenty of anchorages, a choice of shorter or longer sailing distances between overnight stops and plenty of places to stop for provisions and lots of restaurant choices.
The Ionian is perfect for dropping anchor and exploring beaches, paddleboarding or just swimming off the back of your boat.
British Virgin Islands
Although slightly further afield the British Virgin Islands is worth the journey. With over 33 islands to explore along with line of sight navigation and steady trade winds.
There is plenty to explore on and off the water for families of all ages with beach activities and watersports to entertain the kids and bars for the adults to enjoy their favorite cocktail.
Bodrum is located within the southwest Aegean Region of Turkey, in the heart of the Mediterranean.
The city is a thriving tourist destination with many restaurants and bars. If that scene isn’t for you or your family, the city also has a historic castle, which is declared a UNESCO Heritage site, in addition to small cozy restaurants to enjoy.
Each stop on a Bodrum sailing itinerary has traditional Turkish delicacies, with much of the produce being grown locally and fresh fish and traditional Mediterranean cuisine.
Bodrum also has world-class marinas and beachfront anchorages with small pontoons. Bodrum and its surrounding islands offer overnight shelter and protection from winds while also offering peaceful and relaxing places to drop anchor, giving you and your family a quiet and worry-free overnight stop.
When you think of the Balearic Islands, the thriving islands of Ibiza and Mallorca might be the first that comes to mind. However, their quieter neighbor Menorca shouldn’t be overlooked as a family sailing holiday destination.
With the same beautiful beaches as the other island but without the crowds and partying lifestyle.
Menorca is the perfect family sailing holiday destination in Spain. The island has traditional family-run restaurants close to picturesque sailing stops, excellent for eating with children of all ages.
There are also ample spots to relax on beaches, take your children snorkeling, walk and hiking trails along with small quiet towns to explore.
